Celebrate Black History Month by participating in GBHS Black Saga Trivia.


Black history is American history—and it should be taught year-round. But Black History Month offers a great opportunity to focus attention on the history and contributions of African Americans. Questions will be read during the morning announcements on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays of each week throughout the month of February. Students will have the opportunity to provide their answer to the question of the day in the media center. On a post-it, students are to include their first and last name, 1A teacher’s name and the answer to the question. Winners will be announced on Friday of each week with a chance to win a prize.


Today’s Trivia:


  1. For 50 years before the Civil War, more than a dozen slave traders,

including the leading traders–Austin Woolfolk and Hope H. Slatter,

operated from storefronts along Pratt Street to Fells Point in this city.

These traders offered to house and feed enslaved Africans and to purchase

enslaved black persons sold at the New Orleans market. Name the city.
